Entry Fee: $25.

The Call for Artists is now open for our next all member exhibition which opens on Dec 3, 2021 at the ZFolio Gallery in Monterey California. Please sign up now via the link above to secure a place in the exhibit. The registration fee for this exhibition + sale is $25 for the first 25 artists to register. The gallery case space is limited and we regret that there is only room for 25 artists.

The title and theme of the upcoming exhibition is “Looking Ahead” and we are encouraging artists to create up to 2 new art jewelry or small sculpture pieces (maximum 2.5″ height). Your submitted art must showcase metalwork in techniques of your choosing. The theme, “Looking Ahead” may be interpreted as you wish. 

Artists may submit up to TWO pieces of work. 

The materials preferred are silver and gold with a minor amount of inclusions of gems, stones or other materials.

Artists will provide an inventory of their work (using the online Labels and Records form) and will also supply an Artist Statement and Artist Biography for the Artist’s Book which is on display at the gallery. The gallery staff uses this book to help inform potential customers about each piece and the associated artist. We are always impressed how much the gallery staff knows about each piece and each artist.

All pieces submitted to this show must be for sale and priced with commission to the gallery in mind. (ZFolio Gallery 50%, Artist 50%).  

All entrants will receive additional information via email.

ZFolio has an online presence  www.zfolio.com and an instagram presence via @zfolio 

Please do not contact the gallery directly unless you are dropping off or picking up your art. 

We look forward to working with you,
Toni Danzig and Annette Nemes
Exhibit Coordinators
